I've been fascinated by the incredible variety and diversity of the native plants in my area; whether they bloom in a spectacular fashion, or are very subtle and shy, they're always interesting to check on.

Wildflower Identification

Wildflowers are native to your area and perfectly adapted to the conditions of soil, weather and rainfall. 

Learning more about them can give you some insight into the kinds of plants that will thrive in your garden, but more than that, due to habitat loss, pesticide and herbicide use, and climate change many are disappearing. 

If you can leave a corner of your property undisturbed for the native plants and also create a  habitat for the small creatures that need them, it is like having a microcosm right in your own backyard.

Some of the lovely colorful blooms will delight you when they all flower at once.
